Pre-Course Description ►

This pre-course will provide a comprehensive update and overview of the latest knowledge and techniques relevant to knee arthroplasty for the orthopaedic surgeon. The topics will include basic concepts and surgical technique of cruciate retailing and cruciate-sacrificed total knee arthroplasty, as well as unicompartmental knee arthroplasty. Focusing on management for severe varus or valgus deformity, instability, contracture, bone defect, and intraoperative trouble shooting. We have assembled an international faculty, including experts from around the world, presenting on their areas of expertise.

This half-day course will consist of a series of expert and evidence-based lectures. In addition to the lectures there will be panel discussions, particularly on controversial topics such as kinematic alignment. This pre-course will present a variety of surgical techniques, involving video demonstrations, as well as pearls and pitfalls, and discussions for each topic. Following this course, participants will be able to understand how to treat more difficult cases such as severe varus or valgus deformity by total knee arthroplasty.
